Chernovitskaya Malanka will be organized!
The City Council of Chernovtsy has decided to hang on to Malanka festival arrangement. “We consider that Malanka festival has already become a good tradition promoting the growth of tourist attractiveness of the city, saving the national character and generating the original local brand of the folk art product”, stated the office letter from Chernovtsy City Council.
Considering the current situation in Ukraine, at the suggestion of the festival participants it was decided to change the performance style for the charity event that besides the emotional support will also provide funds collection for helping the army and the families of military servants died in the line of duty in the ATO area.
Firtash Foundation came out in support of such feast style and will traditionally present the cash prizes to the best Malanka groups. Moreover, the Foundation covers travelling expenses for all the participating teams of the festival. The folk groups of Malankas, cribs, carollers from all the districts of Chernovtsy and neighboring regions are welcomed for participation.
The charity festival “Chernovitskaya Malanka for the Ukrainian army” is planned to be arranged in Chernovtsy on January 15, 2015.
